I wish the social life wasn't so very cliquey! Amazing sports and challenging academics, paired with incredible teachers, makes for a very good high school in a beautiful location (only ten minutes from the beach). The Falcons clubs aren't advertized much but they do exist and the newspaper is very good.

Torrey Pines High School was a great place to live out my high school years! With super good sports teams and academics, this school is well rounded with something for everyone. We excel in the arts and drama productions as well, with awards from the dance team, sports teams, and academic teams all together!
Torrey Pines has opened my mind and eyes to many things. It has taught me how to work hard and strive to be greater everyday. The teachers care for their students and want the best for them. They push us past our limits thus teaching us valuable lessons and how to be hard workers. The campus is big, the people are friendly and although the classes can be challenging they will keep you on your feet wanting to learn more and more. I have met my best friends at this school and have gone through rough patches but everyone here is extremely supportive and proud to be studying at this amazing of a school. Everyday is a great day to be a falcon!
